Gospel River Mobile

General Hymn Book App notes:

These apps may be used on any device that has Internet access. Just go to the site and add it as a favorite. It should be accessible after that even if you don't have an Internet connection.

Special Instructions for Kindle Fire users:

When you are on the website, you can see a small bookmark icon on your right side of the bottom ribbon (if you aren't seeing the bottom ribbon, try tapping the page). That will take you to a screen where you will see the site with a big plus on it. Tap that, and it will bookmark the site, which may be what you mean by a "favorite".

The current website you have open will also appear on your Carousel on the homescreen. If you long press (hold your finger tip on it for about a second) the site on the Carousel, you'll see a choice to add it to Favorites. That will keep it available to you on the lower bookshelves on that homescreen, and you'll be able to launch it from there. You can long press it on those bottom shelves to remove it from Favorites.

Special Instructions for iPhone/iTouch/iPad users:

If the app isn't available yet for iTunes, you can add the website to your home screen and it will work just like an app. 

1) Navigate to the online link with Safari browser
2) Tap the button with the arrow on it at the bottom center
3) tap add to home screen.

Choice Hymns of the Faith

This hymnal is digitized, but we have run into a conflict in terms of copyright, so the future of this app is uncertain at this point.
